Hōda-san was a first-generation painter of tigers in the new, modern-leaning Nihonga style that became (and still is) very popular. He had good students who helped carry the techniques further into the 20th century, –as can be seen here. He was on various official lists of Japanese masters from 1911 to 1927 and was recognized by the Imperial Household in 1920. This piece dates from roughly those times. The tiger is regarded as “Yin”, is auspicious for bravery and has adorned many military motifs since ancient times.

Very good condition for its age (minor foxing and creases). The high quality silk has wonderful shimmering, reflective qualities and the handmade ceramic jikusaki (roller ends) have aged in the wabi-sabi manner inherent in high-quality Japanese ceramics. *Please click on the upper left-hand corner of the photos to enlarge them a second time. *At home in proper storage – not at my store [location: cabinet A – document: folder A].
